The major concept of the Kima Bali Surf Camp is to get to know what's near and far in Bali.
Here on the island you don’t have to miss out on culture and other activities, you can book those additionally on location. Hindu Bali offers not only endless temples, royal palaces and rice terraces in the island’s interior, the coastal towns have loads of opportunities for shopping, dining and hanging out with the right people.
For the sports fans there is a wide spectrum: diving, wake/kiteboarding, stand-up paddling, volcano trekking, rafting, mountain biking or tree top climbing.
Phillip and Ary are happy to assist you with organisation and booking of such trips. The camp cars with driver or guide can be booked on week-ends for a reasonable price.
Those who love sets off on his own and is not afraid of the Balinese traffic can rent a scooter to get to the beach, the supermarket or for shopping trips to Kuta / Seminyak (international driving license required).
We have various surf boards in all kind of shapes available. If you don't mind the haul, feel free to bring your own equipment or favourite board with you, so you can put them to the ultimate test here. Board shorts, booties, and wax can be had here at reasonable prices.
Leashes are included in the rental, however, possible repairs of the board have to paid for. If you want to be on the safe side as far as ding repair is concerned, you can “insure” your rental board for € 25. That means that we will carry the costs for any repairs over a period of 1 – 3 weeks, whether it’s a tiny dent or a major break.
